‘Gender Reveal’ is a relatively new term and it pertains to the new tradition of parties which have gained in popularity in recent years. The days of waiting until the baby’s birth to know the gender went out with the last century. Instead of relaying news the old-fashioned way ... like talking, the gender of the baby yet to be born is often conveyed in cupcakes and cookies. One bite will reveal pink or blue. What a tasty idea and a great reason to throw a party!
I recently filled an order for gender reveal cookies for a baby boy. Some cookie artisans dye a section of dough blue or pink. I tried a different method where the color is revealed in the icing. This was my first attempt and I’m ready for my next order. Come see the process.
